Resistance to listeriosis in two lines of mice genetically selected for high and low antibody production.

Abstract

Infection by the intracellular parasite Listeria monocytogenes was studied in two inbred lines of mice genetically selected for high and low antibody production against xenogeneic red blood cells. It was revealed that, during the early non-specific phase of infection, bacterial growth in tissues was significantly enhanced in high responder (HR) mice, as… (More)
